GT-R spotted in New Mexico
The Nissan GT-R was spotted at gas station in Sante Fe, New Mexico. Probably doing some high altitude testing in the rockies. The GT-R will debut this year in Tokyo and will go on sale shortly after that in Japan and in spring 2008 in USA and Canada.
The car will use some form of Nissan V6 in the VQ family. It will be based off the same award-winning VQ35DE powerplant that is used in practically every Nissan in production. It won’t be the 3.5L naturally aspirated mill that we’ve seen in the 350Z and G35. It will use a larger displacement 3.7-4.0L version of the same engine mated to a twin-turbo setup. Tuning and engineering has been done by the racing experts at Cosworth. The car will have at least 400 hp and up to 500. No torque figures have been announced.
